The New Colossus tells the true stories of twelve people who are here today because their families fled from constant struggle for survival and moved toward safety and freedom throughout the last 300 years. Through this intensely physical production, a group of actors from all over the world are telling their ancestors' stories in twelve different eras, all woven into a single narrative about escaping an oppressive homeland, drawn to the beacon above Ellis Island.
Performed in twelve languages with supertitles.
Created by The Actors' Gang with Tim Robbins as director. There will be talk backs post show each night.
